FAQs

How do I know if its worth spending money on resume services?

Many clients do not understand what makes a winning resume or cover letter.  There is a lot of incorrect information on the internet about resumes, and its outright confusing.  Even though you may know someone who could write your resume, it doesn’t mean they have the knowledge or skills to do so.  Industries are different from eachother in their requirements, and these change. What used to be ok, just isn’t now. Hiring a professional resume writer is an investment in your future.  How much would it cost you to not get that next job?

How do I know if my resume is up to current industry standards?

To be honest, if you are sending your applications out and are not being shortlisted for jobs, then your documents are not working effectively.  Many clients have a resume that is outdated in content or formatting and doesn’t sell them effectively.  There is a lot more to writing a resume than listing all your information under different headings. Don’t risk having a friend or relative write yours – I’ve seen many that whilst they look good on the surface, are definitely not hitting the mark with content.  Send through your resume to tara@myjobmentor.com.au and we will review yours and let you know – free of charge!
